bug#4713: File encoding (email address)

Hey,

sorry to bother again: I just noticed there was no From field or something in 
this 
bug report thingy, so here is mine:

address@hidden

bye,

Hi!

my source file begins with the following lines

  #!/usr/bin/perl
  # -*- coding: iso-8859-1 -*-
  #

I definitely need the latin-1 encoding here because the script is supposed 
to do some non-standard translations from latin-1 to html entities. However, 
whenever I try to save the file I get the message:

  Selected encoding mule-utf-8-unix disagrees with iso-8859-1-unix specified by 
file contents.  
  Really save (else edit coding cookies and try again)? (yes or no) 

It doesn't help setting the buffer-file-coding system, like

  M-x set-buffer-file-coding-system latin-1

I get then

  buffer-file-coding-system is a variable defined in `C source code'.
  Its value is latin-1-unix
  Local in buffer html_translate; global value is mule-utf-8

but after saving (ignoring the warning) again:

  buffer-file-coding-system is a variable defined in `C source code'.
  Its value is mule-utf-8-unix

Hmm, so it completely ignores my settings. It would be nice if emacs either 
at least gave me the choice between latin-1 and utf-8 (instead of just 
yes or no) or tell me how the hell to "edit the coding cookies" (I have 
no clue what that is and also extensive internet search and manual reading 
didn't turn that up).

Regards,
Elmar
